When is the best time to go on honeymoon to Tanzania?
You can enjoy a Tanzania honeymoon safari at any time of the year but the best time to visit will depend on what you and your partner are hoping to see and do. For example, if you would like to see the Great Migration, the best time to go is during Tanzania’s dry season (between July and October),on the other hand, if you visit the southern Serengeti between February and March you may witness the birth of baby wildebeest, zebras and gazelles as between 200,000-300,000 are birthed in just a few weeks! Get in touch with us if you’re not sure when you would like to visit Tanzania and we will be more than happy to help!
How far is Zanzibar from Tanzania?
If you’re planning on spending some time in Zanzibar as part of your Tanzania honeymoon safari, you’ll be pleased to know that Zanzibar is within easy reach and you can get there by catching a 2-3 hour ferry from Dar Es Salaam. If you're not up for a sea adventure, then it's a quick connecting flight of 30 min from Dar Es Salaam. Most of our itineraries include a quick flight from Moshi to Zanzibar (1 h 45 min).
What are the best honeymoon safari destinations in Tanzania?
Tanzania really is the best of both worlds when it comes to honeymoons as Tanzania honeymoon safaris offer both adventure and relaxing moments on sandy beaches. Here are some of the best places to visit in Tanzania:
Serengeti National Park - Northern Serengeti is a goldmine when it comes to seeing wildlife in their natural habitats. You and your partner can try to spot the ‘Big 5’, and, if you go on your Tanzania honeymoon safari during the dry season (July-October), you can even witness the Great Migration which sees over two million wildebeest, gazelles and zebras move together...you might even be fortunate enough to experience a mass river crossing which is an incredible sight!
Ngorongoro Crater - The Ngorongoro Crater offers some of the most stunning views and is the largest inactive volcanic caldera in the world.
Selous Game Reserve - The Selous Game Reserve is a quieter game reserve so is ideal for honeymooners who want a more intimate experience that allows them to really feel at one with nature!
Lake Manyara - Lake Manyara sees thousands of flamingos flock together and it's popular for its beautiful aquatic landscapes.
Mahale Mountains National Park - If you and your loved one want to get up close and personal with chimpanzees and enjoy hiking...the Mahale Mountains National Park is the place for your Tanzania honeymoon safari!
Tanzania’s spice islands:
We love Zanzibar for its rich cultural and historical heritage, colourful markets and luscious beaches
Pemba Island is a quieter retreat, giving you and your significant other more privacy to relax and enjoy one another's company as well as excellent snorkeling and scuba diving locations
We also think that Mafia Island is incredible as it has a relaxed atmosphere and you can even swim with whale sharks...it makes for a truly unforgettable experience!
How to dress for a honeymoon safari in Tanzania?
If you’re planning a Tanzania honeymoon safari, it’s a good idea to pack the right clothes to ensure you are both comfortable during your trip. Plain, neutral coloured clothing which is relaxed and lightweight is ideal and it’s also a good idea to wear sturdy boots - especially if you’re walking!
Due to our well established, strong personal relationships with all of our ground operators, National Park Authorities and Conservation Management teams in Tanzania, we are always kept up to date on the most recent information of wildlife & conservation projects, ensuring you get to see Tanzania's wildlife like never before.
